Exposure to the Most Likely Consequences: Uncovering Seth Dickinson’s Exordia

Seth Dickinson is pioneering a new genre with Exordia, his Clayton acid science fiction debut, which will be released in January 2024 from Publishing. The critically acclaimed fantasy author takes readers on a journey through time and space with this gripping novel.

In Exordia, an intimate encounter with Anna Sinjari reveals the stakes that threaten the universe. Anna is a refugee, genocide survivor, and disaffected office worker who must join a team of civilians, soldiers, and scientists investigating mysterious broadcasts and unknowable horrors to save humanity from disaster. If they can face their demons, they might just be able to save the world.

Exordia has received high praise from some of the most respected names in the science fiction community. Hugo Award-winning author Arkady Martine described it as “an avalanche: a book’s inescapable, overwhelming, chaotic transformation of landscape scale.” Daniel M. Lavery, author of “The Merry Spinster,” called it “a sweeping catalog of violence on every level, from the subcellular to the interstellar.” Tamsyn Muir, New York Times bestselling author of the Locked Tomb series, hailed Dickinson as “a titan of science fiction.”

Cassandra Khaw, USA Today bestselling author of “Nothing But Blackened Teeth,” said of Exordia, “It’s beautiful, introspective, and incredibly tense. It feels, in the best and worst sense, like a moment of pause in a hospital waiting room before you find out what’s going on.” Hugo Award winner Peter Watts described it as “exciting in concept. Horrible in heart. Hofstadter meets Lovecraft on a very bad psychedelic trip, but better written.”

Seth Dickinson is also the author of the Baloo Cormorant novel and numerous short stories, as well as much of the lore and backstory for Bungie Studios’ Destiny. He currently resides in New York City.
